Identifying & Managing Africa’s Security Challenges



The NTU-SBF Centre for African Studies hosts a bi-monthly breakfast series during which topics of relevance for Africa and those interested in Africa will be addressed. Experts in their fields will be invited to convey their points of view.

Africa is viewed as the last investment frontier. Many African governments have adopted reforms to optimize their countries for foreign investment. However, some foreign media choose to present the continent as a dangerous environment where wars and conflict abound. While the investment opportunities are many and potentially lucrative, the reality is that the security challenges cannot be denied. However, these challenges can be identified and mitigated through appropriate steps. The former Deputy Head of the South African Army, Major General (ret) Les Rudman, will address the challenges and ways to deal with them when moving into Africa.

Les Rudman is the MD of Marais & Rudman International (MRI), a consulting company on integrated security, stability and business solutions in Africa. MRI is well positioned to advise governments and corporates of all sizes on individualized security and stability perspectives. Les Rudman, supported by the Chief Operating Officer, Roy Marais, will share perspectives with the audience from that same capacity.

Attendees can expect to gain insights into the following:

  • Understanding the security challenges facing Africa
  • Understanding the ways and means of dealing with the security challenges
  • Network with like-minded individuals
